Tatiana Maslany as British grifter Sarah Manning on BBC AMERICA’s ‘Orphan Black.’ (Photo: BBC AMERICA)

When Orphan Black begins, a British grifter (Tatiana Maslany) stumbles upon an international conspiracy: she’s one of many clones. And as the story has progressed into what is now the show’s third season, Maslany’s repertoire of characters has expanded to include a suicidal cop (now deceased), a fire-haired German (ditto), a Ukrainian assassin, a high-strung suburban housewife, a meticulous microbiologist, an ice-cold corporate operator, and a transgender male thief.
In playing these diverse characters, the Canadian-born actress has the Herculean task of defining each individual through speech and behavior without tripping over into Saturday Night Live-level caricature. And that’s not even accounting for the performances in which a clone pretends to be another clone. Nuances are layered on nuances.
Through these challenges, Maslany performs a high-wire act so harrowing it would make Nik Wallenda flinch. There are few safety nets here for Maslany; it’s brave, daredevil acting.
Thankfully, Maslany has a tremendous support system on the series, from creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett to the team of directors and technical coordinators. But no one may be as pivotal to Maslany’s success as her dialect coach John Nelles. The Alberta-born, Iowa-raised teacher had previously worked with the actress twice, including on the David Cronenberg film Eastern Promises, in which Maslany played the young Russian narrator. On Orphan Black, Nelles collaborated closely with Maslany, using the way each clone speaks as a foundation on which to build her living, breathing characterizations.

Accent Reduction for Interpreters


*Mention this article on the WLC blog to get a discount. 

The Benefit of Accent Reduction for Interpreters who speak English as a Second Language

In researching definitions of an interpreter’s job, many of them included information similar to the following: 

“The interpreter is a person who converts a thought or expression in a source language into an expression with a comparable meaning in a target language either simultaneously in ‘real time’, or consecutively when the speaker pauses after completing one or two sentences” (Wikipedia).

In both simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, the interpreter needs to be as intelligible to their listeners as possible.  Therefore, it is possible that interpreters who speak English as a second language with an accent flavored by their native language may sometimes be misunderstood when speaking English. Often, there are time constraints, especially in simultaneous interpreting, where there may be only 5 to 10 seconds to translate from one language to the next. In situations such as these, if a translated word is not understood, there may be no extra time to repeat oneself or to clarify which word was attempted to be translated.  Additionally, if there are loud noises occurring in the environment, the listener may have trouble understanding an interpreter with non-native English speech. 

Working with a professionally trained speech therapist, specializing in Accent Reduction, can be very beneficial for interpreters who speak English as their second language and find that their native accent causes misunderstandings in their work.  An effective Accent Reduction program begins with a thorough speech evaluation, to determine precisely what sounds would be worked on.  For example, in my Accent Reduction program, I hold weekly one-hour sessions in person or via Skype to teach how the standard American English target sounds differ from the client’s pronunciation, helping my clients master how to produce the sounds, and to practice using the sounds in various contexts.  Enrichment materials are provided for the client to practice between lessons, using a book and an online practice lab. With attendance at each lesson, and diligent practice, clients can expect to achieve substantial reductions in their accent.

For more information about Accent Reduction, you can visit my website at www.AccentReductionNow.com and contact me at (818)385-1716 
(please keeping in mind that I am on the PST zone).

French Cats vs English Cats: Idioms Translation from French to English

When is a cat not a cat? It happens quite often when doing a translation from French to English involving figures of speech! Anyone who has studied both languages may well have already noticed that the French much prefer the cat over most other animals in their figures of speech, compared with British English sayings. We’ve looked at our favourite French cat sayings and translated them into English - partly as an intriguing vocabulary exercise and partly as an excuse to fill this article with cats!

Est-ce que le chat est toujours un chat, en anglais et en français? Souvent en traduisant le français vers l’anglais, on trouve les figures du style clairement félines que n’existent pas en anglais. On a choisi quelques figures: du style et ‘du chat’ - en partie comme un exercice de vocabulaire, en partie pour chercher les chats!


Á bon chat bon rat

Literal Translation: For each good cat, there’s a good rat.

Translation from French to English: Two can play at that game. But cats and rats would most likely play it better!

Chat échaudé craint l’eau froide

Literal Translation: A scalded cat is scared of cold water.
Translation from French to English: Once bitten, twice shy. Most likely by a cat?

Donner sa langue au chat

Literal Translation: To give your tongue to the cat.
Translation from French to English: To have no idea.*

*Ah, you thought we nearly had a matching idiom, there! When questioning if the cat has your tongue in French, it’s often translated as <tu as perdu(e) ta langue?> No cats in sight. Utterly bizarre.

Avoir un chat dans la gorge

Literal Translation: To have a cat in your throat.
Translation from French to English: To have a frog in your throat. Not quite a cat. It’s turning into a horrible round of ‘would you rather’. Frog or cat? A frog is smaller, I suppose!

Appeler un chat un chat

Literal Translation: To call a cat a cat.
Translation from French to English: To call a spade a spade. What about if you chose to call your cat, Spade? Would that make this more or less confusing?

Il n’y a pas de quoi fouetter un chat

Literal Translation: It’s nothing to whip a cat about.
Translation from French to English: There’s no need to get your knickers in a twist. Relieved cats and non-twisted knickers all round, hooray!
C’est du pipi du chat

Literal Translation: It’s cat urine.
Translation from French to English: It’s nothing to worry about. Any excuse to talk about cats, eh?

Gourmande comme un chat

Literal translation: Food-lover, like a cat
Translation from French to English: Describes someone who is either a foodie, and very passionate about food or perhaps even a bit picky. Which makes sense, because have you ever tried to feed a cat anything that didn’t look expensive enough for it? That nose in the air - that’s what this phrase sums up.

Quand le chat n’est pas là, les souris dansent

Literal Translation: When the cat isn’t there, the mice dance.
Translation from French to English: When the cat’s away, the mice will play. Whether the dancing French mice or the playing English mice have more fun? That’s debateable!

Il n’y a pas un chat

Literal Translation: There isn’t a cat.
Translation from French to English: There isn’t a soul. Trying to describe a deserted street in French? The cats, or lack of them, will sum up the image perfectly.

So there you have it! Looking for more English to French translation? World Language Communications is happy to count Global Language Services as a global partner.
